More Just War


I hope that folks who are hearing things like that get themselves access to the Catechism and some of the good, reasonable just war writing that is out there. Two websites you’ll like–and potentially find useful and even somewhat comforting–if you’re bothered by clerics who say troubling things about Americans doing their moral and civic duty: “Catholic Just War” and “Catholics in the Military.” As many of you know, Michael Novak has written extensively for NRO on the issue–including the issue of civilian casualities. NRODT has run an excellent editorial. And the list goes on, which I am happy to provide on request.
